African drummers, Thai dancers and belly dancers will provide entertainment at a festival in Fraserburgh this month that aims to celebrate the diversity in culture.

Celebrating the Difference festival will take place at Fraserburgh's North East of Scotland College campus on September 17 from 12 pm to 4 pm.

Also providing entertainment will be Lighthouse Rock, Broch sounds, Russian Nadejda Millington and Highland dancing from the Lawrence Academy.

There will be face painting, balloon sculpting and story telling on the day and Bobs Buddies will be there with his birds alongside an array of food from all over the world.

A spokeswoman for the event said: "Celebrating the Difference aims to bring together people from the many different countries and cultures who live in and around Fraserburgh and people with disabilities, for a fun filled day of international food, music and dance, and lots more."

Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP will open the event which Buchan Community Radio will then broadcast live.

It is believed that Stewart Stevenson may also say a few closing words.

The event is free and open to the public.
